Review from previous reading, Dec 31 2008:

This book gets sticky for me at a few places. When Harry's kind of too busy stalking Draco to think about anything else he really got on my nerves. Bleh.

But other than that it's actually one of the most engaging of the series...which is saying something. I love the parts with Dumbledore in them. Even moreso than in any of the other books - Dumbledore is hilarious. He's truly at his best when faced with death. I also like how he get short with Harry in this one, finally acts more like you'd expect him to and less...patient all the time.

Seriously, anyone who reads this and immediately goes into The Deathly Hallows? I don't see how you can dislike Dumbledore. After a long break....maybe.

But I just love the characterization. It brought a lump to my throat every time someone mentioned Sirius, too, so it wasn't just Harry. ;)
